If you hadn’t heard before now, Good Trouble is the name of the upcoming spin-off for The Fosters — and, to go along with that, we have a new tease detailing a little bit of what the story is.
In the video below (via SpoilerTV), you learn courtesy of show executive producers Peter Paige and Joanna Johnson some of the finer details about the series, including some of how it was conceived. The moment that it was revealed that The Fosters was coming to an end, the idea immediately came up to move the characters of Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) to downtown Los Angeles, where the two would be looking for ways to fight the system and change the world for the better.
When it comes to Callie, it seems like she will have graduated law school at the time in which the series picks up — and, to go along with that, she will find herself working under a conservative judge. for her, one of the big challenges is probably going to be finding a way to cooperate with someone even if you don’t necessarily agree with every single thing that they have to say. She’s not going to be able to win every battle and there will be compromise.
As for Mariana, the producers detail that she finds herself immersed in the tech world, a place that is constantly changing but also a place that will throw many obstacles at her. It’s still a male-dominated field and because of that, she’ll likely have to deal with sexism — whether it is intentional or not. One thing we like about the show immediately is that it’s taking a realistic approach to living in Los Angeles — namely in that it’s super-expensive and they’re going to need to find help in order to afford their place.
This show likely isn’t coming for a while (there are still three episodes of the original series to air), but we like to think that this gives you a good sense as to what’s coming.
